religion, or is it really deep and historical sense of oneness? my own little theory is that it became until recently, people like strom thurmond, the fact that so many white men, historically in this country pulled themselves that they were not the product of race and so this invisibility of the product of race is not the product of the women who must've really wanted them. otherwise it is -- it is very clear that some parts operate at a distance. >> i would also, speaking to your question about whether this is about action or reaction, and of course, i think it is all part of this so that everything is constant in action and reaction -- one thing i want to point to, i think when we talk about these kind of race comments on the contraceptive comments are so outrageous over the past year, we think of it as a republican blood of stupidity. in fact, one of the interesting things is that it was prompted by unusual behavior on the part of the democrats. the democrats, while being the party of women, and about the time -- as soon as they started counting the gender gap, which really wasn't

abortion, you have to right to face for abortion rights, go for it. religion, the more women are sub gated. women are raised as institutionalized sexism. no one think to say point out that things are sexist. we grow used to it. women are indoctrinated into this feeling that they are second place citizens and men who want to get inside of those bodies get to dictate what happens to those bodies if they do. >> caller: i wouldn't dare get into a conversation about religion. it's up to them and i don't want to interfere with that. and i believe in everybody's right to do that, no matter how fundamentalist. >> amen. >> caller: but the trouble is that there are plenty of women and men who believe that women should not have these rights who aren't particularly religious. >> exactly. that's true. >> caller: who aren't particularly, you know, who don't go to church every sunday and don't, you know, belong to an evangelical congress degree allegation. >> stephanie: i think it also didn't, you know, resonate with people, they are saying small government, the best bumper sticker, government small enou

with our long history and pluralization of american religions. >> so tell us a bit about that history. why is it okay to joke about jesus but not other religious figures? >> the sacred is much more in contest here in part because of our legacy of religious freedom, but in part because we've had a long history of conflict over sacred imagery and words, often violent conflict. and in more recent years because of the rise of secularism, because of the rise of the culture of mockery in part, as well. it's just become more acceptable. >> is it because more and more of us are agnostic? i mean, why is it? is it -- do we still believe in jesus yet we joke about him? is it the other way around? >> well, it's funny if you read the comments on our cnn belief blog, you'll see that people are engaging in arguments with each other saying our argument has but humor is the way we deal with these kinds of conflicts. and as we say in the piece, in part, it's our way we don't kill each other. >> well, interestingly, i was talking to one of the employees here at cnn, kathy, and she said her minister, she belo
and really not about race or religion, and that is a difficult concept for some others as they look at ours. >> i am with one of the sponsors, northrop grumman. i am curious because i lived in syria. when there is a lot of discussion about things breaking down into sectarianism, i do not see any mention of the fact that syria has probably the largest christian population in the middle east, something like 20% to 30%. ok. my figures are dated. anyway, i am curious why this is not discussed, and if you would comment on the role of the christian community in syria and how you see that playing out -- thank you. >> i mean, i do not think we are hearing a lot right now about the differences between the moslems and christians, because that is not a pressing problem in syria, and getting back to a comment earlier about it spilling over into the rest of the region, -- they are now all in turkey, try to help the turks get assad out. getting him out with goes a long way to add least getting some other resources -- getting him out would go a long way to at least getting some other resources redirected.
tag team of globetrotting researchers as serious about big foot as the pope is about religion. big foot, sasquatch, yeti, it is often a punchline. people are incredibly skeptical. >> you get punched if you say that stuff around me. >> reporter: like we said, they are really into big foot. never mind the fact that the only thing any one knows for sure about the legendary beast it has been wildly successful at filling tabloids. subject of terrible b movies and generally serving as an all-around punchline. matt moneymaker, rene holland and james bobo fey are real life big foot hunters. with every bit of technology, night vision gear and sensors they can get their hand on, the group travels the world investigating big foot sightings. why are people fascinated by big foot? >> well, first it is more than one, it's not big foot, it's big foots. a misconception we are looking around for this one thing. >> reporter: adventures and investigations make up two and soon to be three seasons of the animal planet show "finding big foot." why is there no good photo or video? the famous photo and fi
: they were talking about religion on the last show, and i just wanted to make a comment. it seems that all the republican ministers, you know, like the evangelical people their ministers are more like glenn beck, what they were taught. they probably had ministers like glenn beck in their churches. i'm lutheran so i just had a pastor like a regular he didn't do anything but read out of the bible. he didn't act like glen we glenn beck. if you're raised you don't know the difference. but people who have religious parents that are taught in the traditional way from their grandparents are different than born again people. >> stephanie: i don't much-- >> caller: either you have parents, grandparents or great grandparents who taught you or a minister you don't know anything about religion, and you have glenn beck. >> stephanie: i don't know much about lutherism except you have great hot dishes. >> caller: it's your traditional catholic or traditional methodist, it's all from catholic. i'm swedish. >> i'm practiceing catholic. i practiced so good i'm not practicing any more. >> that's easy to do o
